My self-summary
I like birds and words.

I am a heterosexual, cisgendered, redheaded, and able-bodied linguist, feminist, atheist activist, and likely the biggest Amanda Palmer fan you'll ever meet. (And if you're like "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED" to that, by the way, then we should most DEFINITELY become best friends immediately, if not sooner.)

I'm a huge advocate of the ampersand (&), the interrobang (‽), and the Oxford Comma.

And ... I don't know what else to say?! (See what I just did there?)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm still trying to answer that one for myself ... Ah well, I'm young yet.

I recently graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Linguistics, and I'm currently working in a bar that specializes in craft beer while I sort out my greater life trajectory.
I’m really good at
Kicking your ass at Scrabble, identifying birds, and painting my face like it's my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either the fiery red hair, the resonant laughter, or the fact that I shave off my eyebrows, but I don't shave under my arms.

I'm ironic like that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

"A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson
"Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" by Tom Stoppard
"Urban Tantra" by Barbara Carrellas
"The Boy Detective Fails" by Joe Meno
"The Big Year" by Mark Obmascik
"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
or anything by Nietzsche, Montaigne, Carl Sagan, &c.

I don't read books very much anymore, but when I do, they're usually on science or philosophy. Not a big fiction person.


Eek, how much time do you have ...

Although, in terms of TV, I should mention that I have a gigantic hard-on for Peep Show. David Mitchell is a god among men, my friends. And I'll watch anything with Gordon Ramsay in it. Although, I must say that Boy Meets World will forever remain the greatest show of all time, and that's a fact.


Amanda Fucking Palmer is the air that I breathe.

Mother Mother comes in second.

Beyond that, I'm open to anything.


Anything with mushrooms involved. Also, I really truly hate seafood. #sorryImnotsorry
The six things I could never do without

2) That's all I can come up with right now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social justice, feminism, sex education reform — the works.

Also, what birds must be thinking when they're perched on telephone wires. "Look what they made for us!"
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a survivor of repeated sexual assault. I suffer from PTSD, depression, and EDNOS. I'm in recovery, but these things take time.

(Hoo boy, this super srs bsns is probably really turning you on!)
You should message me if
You're willing to read my blog series on surviving sexual abuse:

It's a bummer, I know, but hey, shit's real.

**EDIT: After receiving a rather disturbing message on here, I would also like to add DO NOT MESSAGE ME just to victim-blame me. Please and thank you!
